This is a Novel of Significance:

by jjares on Apr 17, 2013

This is a complex novel and it is definitely thought-provoking. I didn?t know what to expect since this is my first book by Mary Balogh. Well, I certainly didn?t expect the opening salvo! It took time to work my mind around this storyline ? to say it was different is an understatement. Fleur is a young woman who has run out of options. She?s a hunted woman who is hungry, without a place to sleep, friendless and doesn?t know where to turn. She takes the only choice she sees; I could understand her position. What I had a hard time with was what I saw as Adam?s brutality. Yet, Adam tries to make amends and shows himself to be a flawed human, trying to do the right thing. After their first encounter, Fleur is afraid of Adam. Balogh takes her time; Fleur?s opinion changes slowly ? and that is very realistic. This isn?t a quick story ? it takes time for things to change. After all, Adam is married to one of the most beautiful women in England. The story moved rather slowly for awhile, until Adam?s brother, Thomas Kent arrived on the scene. The two lead characters have lots of layers and they are disclosed slowly. The secondary characters were also memorable. Balogh did a wonderful job of making them breathe, make mistakes and be human. This isn?t a book I can read once; I?ve decided to wait several months and reread it. In the meantime, I plan to try some of Mary Balogh?s other novels.
